The MacJury (http://www.macjury.com) recently convened to look at technology and education.
It is that time of year again. Schools and universities around the globe welcome students back to their studies, but what tech is going with them? How are those institutions embracing (or not) laptops, iPhones, iPods and iPads? Are they keeping up with the pace of change in the
outside world, or is education establishment stuck in the past?
The MacJury examines these questions from a variety of standpoints, including hardware access and availability, textbooks vs. tech, the wisdom of funding allocations, the U.S. education market compared to other places in the world, and more. Recommendations for hardware, software and services for students and educators alike are provided by the panel of Erik Bernskiold, Pat Fauquet, Jeff Gamet, Keith Lang, Julio Ojeda-Zapata, and host Chuck Joiner.
